Your eyes shine,
like lanterns in the dark,
illuminating my soul.
The day you were born,
I knew my heart would never be
My soul sang,
I found home.
I paint the sky,
I reach for the stars,
it's your birthday.
The canvas of our life,
abstract, vibrant with color.
We have grown,
through tears and laughter,
curve-balls and hurdles.
pulling a red wagon
filled with dreams.
I wish your road is lighter .
I wish your life is filled with wander.
I wish you love,
everyday of your life.
Your eyes humble,
you have not learned
to embrace how great you are.
I knew all along,
your noble heart,
your healing hands,
carry the strength of your spirit.
Your soul dancing,
Son, I look into your eyes,
you are the right I have done
in this world.
My love infinite,
swept in awe,
my little baby boy,
you grew into a great man.
Happy birthday, my love.
